I had no problem with your links. What you have is a brass elephant bell from India that sits in a holder. The elephant bell itself is quite common. It is less common, but not rare, to find an elephant bell with its holder. By no means do all elephant bells have holders. Most don't.
By any chance does it say SARNA or Bells of Sarna on either piece? Sometimes Sarna's name is etched with little dots on one of the claws.
I'm not familiar with this bulletin board, so I'm not sure if you see posts
in reply to your posts, so I'm emailing you directly. Here is what my mom
said about the bell:
"Inside the bell part are a big A and a smaller something that may be an H.
They are close to the center near where the clapper is attached. I don’t
see any other marks." Here's a zoom in on the "A":
